Seoul Mamas Revitalizing Mask Review
My Seoul Mamas Revitalizing Mask ($8 for 1 pc) spent the last year locked up in a drawer. Truth is, I received several masks from the company when they were about to launch, and just never had the chance to post about them. Now that I am doing sheet mask reviews semi-regularly I thought it’s finally time to share my opinion about these.
Revitalizing Mask is currently the brand’s only product, but I’d rather someone be good at one thing, than offer dozens of products that are mediocre at best. Life’s too short for bad skincare, am I right?
The sheet itself if made of bamboo fiber, which can retain water better than cotton and paper masks. This superior water retention makes the mask stay moist for longer periods of time, improving its efficacy and absorption of active ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, the serum boasts nourishing Caviar extract, deeply hydrating Hyaluronic acid, antioxidant Apple and wild cherry fruit extract, and soothing & brightening Chamomile flower extract. This mix makes it suitable for all skin types, because it can hydrate and nourish dry skin, help re-balance oily and combination skin, combat free radicals, and visibly brighten discolorations. Obviously, you won’t see a whole lot of changes after just one application, but with regular use it’s as good as an anti-aging serum, if not better.
I have mixed feelings about Seoul Mamas Revitalizing Mask. I thoroughly enjoyed the soothing and cooling effect, and my skin definitely felt more hydrated afterward. The brightening effect was temporary due to cooling of the skin’s surface, but like I said above, the serum does contain ingredients that can help address hyperpigmentation with regular use. Now, how regularly you want to use an $8 sheet mask is up to you.
What I didn’t care for was the fragrance and the alcohol in the formula. I have no issues with those being present in cheaper masks, but it’s not something I expect to see in an $8 mask.
Seoul Mamas Revitalizing Mask on my face – I always look like a creeper!
After using Seoul Mamas Revitalizing Mask – skin feels refreshed, moisturized, and looks brighter.
You will LOVE it if:
- You are looking for a sheet mask that can address multiple skin concerns – hyperpigmentation, dryness, dehydration
- You avoid parabens in your beauty products.
- You have a small face. The mask will fit like second skin!
- You prefer cruelty-free cosmetics.
You will HATE it if:
- You have a large face. The sheet runs small.
- You avoid alcohol and fragrance in skincare.
- You are sensitive to any of the ingredients.

The mask worked really well for my skin, it was soothing, hydrating, and very comforting. However, I personally think that the price point is a bit steep for what it offers. I have tried other $8 masks from Korea, and honestly, Seoul Mamas Revitalizing Mask does not measure up. While I do believe this is a very good sheet mask for any skin type, to me personally it is not worth the asking price. I would gladly pay up $4 a piece though.
